TAP Air Portugal has launched a flash sale which when combined with some of the excellent Business Class fares we’ve been seeing recently, could make traveling in comfort across the Atlantic remarkably good value. With Economy Class fares discounted too, there should be something for everyone in this sale.

Using The Discount Code
This will ensure that the flight searches you now perform all have the TRAVEL15 code activated and this is something you should be able to see under your search criteria:
TAP Air Portugal is well-known for offering excellent Business Class fares across the Atlantic and right now I can see a number of great deals in either direction.
USA – Europe
Right now, there’s this fare between NYC and Paris…
…and there are similarly priced fares from NYC to Amsterdam, Madrid, and Zurich. For approximately $100 more you’ll find Business Class fares to Milan & Rome.
Europe – USA
One of the very best deals I can see available right now is for travel between London (a traditionally expensive place to start a journey) and NYC with roundtrip Business Class fares at an incredible $1,291/~£1,000:
You’ll find other very good deals out of cities like Oslo, Paris, and Amsterdam.
Make sure you get an even better deal out of whatever trips you book by using a credit card that gives you a good return on your travel spending and, preferably, one that also comes with good travel protections (just in case!)
The Platinum Card from American Express and the Business Platinum Card from American Express both earn 5 points/dollar for spending made directly with airlines, while the Chase Sapphire Reserve card earns 3 points/dollar for just about all travel spending. Importantly, all three of these cards offer good trip delay, interruption, and cancellation protections.
The Amex Green Card earns 3 points/dollar for just about all travel spending but doesn’t offer the same level of protection as the Platinum Card or the Sapphire Reserve, and although the Citi Prestige Card matches the Platinum Card with its earnings of 5 points/dollar on spending made directly with airlines, the fact that it offers no travel protections at all makes it a considerably less appealing option.
TAP Air Portugal’s latest discount code opens up some excellent deals on various routes that the airline operates. The promotion only runs through 21 September but with the deal available for travel into 2021 this is still a very tempting proposition.
